Hello Alpine, we've been expecting you. LMDh confirmed for 2024.

I still don't understand why IMSA let the LMDH rules go to the WEC. If you want to build an LMDH instead of LMH you should have to go through IMSA. No one is building an LMH to go through IMSA only so why should teams have that option for WEC. But maybe I want to have more cars in IMSA as well

I mean Glickenhaus wants to race in IMSA...
Would Alpine qualify as an IMSA manufacturer?

They have to pay IMSA's entry and marketing fees, produce at least 2500 cars a year to be considered an OEM, and I think it would help if Renault sold Alpine cars in North America.

Are the 2500 cars worldwide or North America only?

Your guess is as good as anyone's, S365's comment with his quotations

IMSA has updated its sporting regulations to reflect the definition of a manufacturer, which now states that the OEM must not only be recognized as an “IMSA Official Automotive Partner” but also have an “annual production of 2,500 or more vehicles for public consumption and public road use” in order to be eligible in the WeatherTech Championship.

I'll bet Alpine could be approved as produced under the Nissan cover so there's your 2500 in a single town. If they so desired

In 2019, Alpine has sold 3172 cars. In 2020, it has dropped to 1526 cars (covid effect I guess as we had a serious lockdown in France).

Since, the brand has been relaunched in 2018, more than 10000 cars have been sold.


I guess that those sale figure make it eligible for IMSA races if they pay the commercial fee.

Alpine is a brand owned by Renault - currently their sales do not justify running a F1 and top sportscar team, so there must be big expansion plans for the brand in the future - at the moment it is just about raising brand awareness

If that S365 quote is direct, they have slightly deviated from what is written in the sporting regulations:

1.32. Manufacturer means an officially recognized IMSA Official Automotive Partner pursuant to a separate agreement with IMSA, with annual production of 2,500 or more vehicles for public consumption and public road use.

1.35. OEM means original equipment as delivered on a Car built by a recognized automobile manufacturer and delivered via a regular retail sales outlet.

Not that it really matters in the terms of this discussion - although I think the subtle difference of 'OEM' definition may impact some teams.
e.g. - are Glick's OEM parts delivered via a regular retail sales outlet?

I would guess that means a shop, not ordering your Noble from a dude in Ohio online. I think it was Ohio but you could order your US Noble online and get your engine at the same time from the stock they had

Nico Muller self confirms he'll be an Audi LMDh driver from '23.

https://twitter.com/nico_mueller/sta...50464119132162

Will be interesting to see what his programme is next year.

Let’s hope the Audi LMDH program goes ahead on schedule. I’m sure Muller will find something to do in the meantime, although it’s anyone’s guess where he will be

Rene Rast also announced at Audi. Might be time to start a driver thread in the near future.

Rast and Muller are kind of obvious choices on that account, as well as the fact that for sure Rene has some LMP1 experience. Also, we have to consider that Multimatic are supposed to be delivering chassis to Porsche Motorsport and Audi Sport by year's end/very early next year, and Porsche did target a late 2021 roll out for their car, and Audi Sport probably won't be far behind.

I can think of a lot worse than Rast and Muller, they've got enough experience in this type of racing. Hopefully the cars will be prepared enough by the time it comes to race. Exciting times ahead, even if we won't have it as good as was at Le Mans when we had so many different manufacturers like Toyota, Porsche and the successful Audi, plus the great Rebellion
